  • This sounds like a good show for a good cause. I have entered and been juried into several national shows and always feel good about it. It would seem that having those show on your resume would be a good, possibly essential thing, especially for an emerging artist. What are other artist’s take on entering shows? Has being juried into shows benefited their art career and in what way? Which shows are viewed to be prestigious enough to have an impact on a career? Just curious?

  • the 25 dollar entry fee is how many juried shows pay for themselves … this fee may seem small to begin with , but it opens the door for the artist to feel comfortable about paying to show their work … be careful perceptually to the concept of ‘ give me your beautiful work & now pay me for it ‘ …
